Nicolas Lafay in collaboration with Laura Marija Balčiūnaitė presents "ILYA"
This project is an artist’s multiple of 30 copies numerated.
It is formed of music composed by Nicolas and recorded on cassette tape with artworks hand painted by Laura Marija.
Laura and Nicolas met in Studium P (Vilnius) where both of them had made shows.
ILYA is a confluence between the drawing universe of Laura Marija Balčiūnaitė and the synthetic noise of Nicolas Lafay. It tries to improve new ways of feeling noises by introducing sensuality and poetry in front of abstract music.
This project is also inspired by the concept of the philosopher Emmanuel Levinas “there is” (ilya in french), and specially from a text in the book “ethic and infinity”:
Noise Ladder is art project created by Nicolas Lafay in 2015. It explores the field of noise music through performances which confront body with technology and cassette records.
